Workshop Description

Due to limited resources or time, our role of supporting others as counsellors and helpers is often brief. That is why it is essential to have the skills to explore meaningful goals and achieve practical advancements in a short period of time. Solution-focused therapy (SFT) is a short-term, goal-oriented counselling approach that seeks to help clients by focusing on solutions rather than problems. This workshop provides an overview of the SFT framework and explores its strengths and limitations. Participants will learn practical strategies for helping others reach achievable goals and gain an increased confidence and capacity for supporting others when there are time constraints.

Portrait of Angie Allan, MEd, RPsych

Angie is a Psychologist and has a Master of Education degree in Counselling Psychology. She has provided mental health services in a variety of settings including an eating disorders program, a youth mental health centre, housing for individuals transitioning from hospital to community, and a return-to-work treatment program for a national employee assistance provider. In addition to training with CTRI, Angie maintains a busy private practice where she provides therapy, consulting, and coaching to individuals and organizations. As a therapist, she believes that people seek therapy not for their problems, but because their current solutions are no longer working. This influences her training style, where she partners with her learners by taking a curious, nonjudgemental, strengths-based approach to support them as they create meaningful and lasting change.
